5:03 pm
get through it without completely losing it we had three wonderful dogs. jet was my inseparable companian as a anniversary gift. he was my hunting buddy and fishing companion and sat next to me as i wrote the words of the book. i don't agree with those who say the country is going to the dogings. i wish it were. dogs are faithful . jet was good and kind to everyone. especially children f. there were a hundred people in the room and holding out a stake and i was standing there empty handed. he would come to me first. he didn't believe the nasty things people wte about me in the newspapers and blogs and never thought my speeches were too long or jokes too corner or i had made a stupid decision . he got up when i got up went
5:04 pm
to bed when i went to bed. good dogs are loyal. in politicings, i found few people are really and totally loyal. dogs are. more often than i would like to recount in politics and business. i have given people jobs and opportunitis and trusted them and paid them well, only to have them turn on me in betrayal. my dogs have never done that. people i thought were valued friends talked trash behind my back. my dog jet had my back. dogs live to please. people are selfish and demanding. you give a dog enough food and rubs on the head he will ask little more than to be there when you need him. they are naturally curious and curious about things that are not all that pleasing to humans. their quest for knowing would put most human students to shame. dogs will sacrifice their own
5:05 pm
interest to please their master and nothing i could have done to make jet turn on me. our culture is harsh and coars and vulgar and caustic . people take the blogs to say the worst things about others because there is no accountability for the comments made no matter how false and damaging they might be. they only bite when the masters are threatened and if you want to create an analogy of the degeneration of our culture, don't say it is going to the dogs. that is an insult to the man's best friend. just say the country is starting to act like congress. now that is truly disgusting behavior. on thursday, diane feinstein and fellow democrats bruced the new plan for the assault weapon's ban. >> enough is enough. these weapons don't belong in the city. they are not hunting withins and not necessary for the

defense. >> nra condemned proposal. gun bans do not work . we are confident that congress will reject senator feinstein wrong handed approach. susana huff aagrees. she say it does nothing to keep minute people safer and she knows first hand what it is like to be in the presence of a mad man with a fire arm. >> i didn't grow nup a house with guns. i don't hunt. but i was given a gun by a friend when i was 21 to carry in my purse for self defense and taught how to use it. a couple of yearrs ago, my parents and i went to a cafeteria in texas on a bright sunny day . we were not in a dark alley. >> that was susaba huff testifying two decades ago. and that bright sunny day was october 16th, 1991 when a man
5:07 pm
drove his pick up truck through the luby's cafeteria in keileen, texas. >> it took me 45 seconds to realize that this man was not there to commit a robbery or a hit. he was there to simply shoot as many people he could. >> susana did have a gun with her that day. >> when i finally realized i thought i got him and i reached for my purse. he was 12 feet away . you know, is it possible my gun could have jammed sure. i have hit much smaller targets at greater distances and a couple of months earlier. i made the stupid decision of my life. i took it out of my pirce and left it in the car. in the state of texas it is sometimes a felony defense. >> he shot 42 people and killed 43 before turning the gun on himself.
5:08 pm
susana mother and father were shot and killed that day. the law prevented her from possibly saving her parent's lives. >> i am not mad at the guy who did this and not mad at the gun who is did they didn't walk in there and pulled their own trigger. the guy who did it was a lunatic. i am made at the legislatures for legislating me out of the right to protect my family. >> from lubies to the legislature. one woman's fight against gun control. thank you for joining me today. i want to ask you about the situation that day in luby's, next door there was a number of police officers attending a conference. they had to go to their cars and unlock their weapons in order to go in and try to stop the shooter. when they got into luby's tell me specifically what they told you they saw in relation to
5:09 pm
what happened to your parents? >> well, actually a number of the officers were patients of mine and they took me and part of my family a week later and told me when they actually entered the building they didn't know who the shooter was but saw a woman cradling a mortally wounded man and they saw a 30 manage year old man walk up to her and put a gun to her head and she looked up to him and put her had down and pulled the trigger. my parents had just had their frenth wedding anniversary. it didn't occur to me my mom didn't go anywhere without my dad. >> susana your own feelings as a testified. you had a gun in the car and you didn't take it in with you because at that time texas didn't allow you to, it was a gun-free zone. tell me what you think of gun free zones.
5:10 pm
>> well, you know, it is almost hard for me to talk about it because it seems so painfully clear that all of these mass shootings occur in places where guns are not allowed. these lunatics want to rackk up high body bag accounts. they don't go to gun shows or nra conventions or places where hunters are gathering. they go where the government said you can't protect yourself and it frustrates me. i have children in school. i work in sometimes in places where guns are not allow puts me in the position of flag rantly ignoring the law or oboying the law and putting myself at risk. right now the president and vice-president and senator feinstein are proposing we crack down on people who owns guns and capacities was magazines. you faced it first hand with
5:11 pm
your own family. tell me what you think of the proposals and what you think are helpful to people like you or if you think it is more advantageous to the criminal than people like you? they are a joke. the only thing that gun laws like that do is prevent people like me from being able to protect ourselves. they don't affect people who are bent on doing harm in any way, shape or form. i find it very frustrating when they use such a horrible event as what happened in connecticut to try to go after guns that frankly, this is another one of my frustrations, is that the so-called assault weapons you talk to the average person on the street. they think they mean rapid fire. you and i know that rapid fire weapons have been illegal in this country in 19s 30s.
5:12 pm
they have just renamed them so people are afraid of them and they don't shoot differently than what i own. yeah, i don't want them to ban those. there is no logic involved. if there were a little logic, i would be okay with it. >> no, i think that is exactly what is troubling to so many of us. this is not a racial thoughtful process. but to aplyy to your situation, do you think your parents would have been alive had that gun been in your purse instead of out in the car in the parking lot. >> i get that question freiently. it is hard to second guess or arm chair quarterback. it would have made a difference. as it is, we were like fish in a barrel and the police officers told me all they had to do is fire a shot in the ceiling and this guy went to a back bathroom and exchange
5:13 pm
would gunfire with the police and then put a bullet in his head. for the most part they are looking for easy pickings. >> so many experts made the same comment. once their bubble is burst and no longer believe they have total controll of the shooting situation, they usually freezing or killing themselves on the spot because their fantasy of the shooting gallery has ended. susana. i am so sorry for the tragedy you experienced so many years ago and your challenger in coming forward in telling your personal perspective will be herd as this is an issue debated on the national level. >> thank you very much. that's why i wrote the book and i hope the word gets out to a lot of people. >> thank you for joining us today. has the front line on the war on terror moved from the mideast to northern africa? coming up. homeland security member and

it is a international movement and there is a vacume and they fill it. the president hurt us in implying that the war against al-qaida is over. core al-qaida has been hurt but they have matacicized and now it is more of a threat to us now because it is so decentralized. it is morphed so much and coming at us in so many different directions and i am afraid we are letting our guard down. >> there are report the new york times that the people involved in the algeria attack were aso involved in the attack on benghazi. do you have information to substaniate that. >> i don't want to go into the details of that. but there is a real concern and no doubt we are talking about people who are fish in the same pond here. this is the same group of people. i will have to leave it at that. these and those country in particular.

5:40 pm
somebody's hands. you know it is harder to use a assault weapon to hit something. if you want to keep people away buy shot gun shells . hopefully there is only one person coming and it only takes two shells to take him out. because if you have multiple people coming, if you buy shot gunnel shoulds, i hope you can throw them hard enough to stop the rest of the attackers. this shows the idiocy of the people who are asking us to give up voluntarily those weapons of self defense because they assume who ever attacks us will only be one person with a minimal amount of ammunition coming toward us. if someone is attacking you. shouldn't you be equally armed to defend yourself? a double barrel shot gun works wonders in the duck woods . might against a single bugular who has a single shot gun.

5:47 pm
forget. jim andicle k- jilll kelly join me now. and many marriages end because of the death of a child and many others because of infell delity within the marriage. you guys had beaten all of the odds because you are still together. i want you to talk about how you are able to make that work. >> for me first, it was early on because i know after i retired from the nfl, two weeks later on valentino's day our son was born, hunter and to have a son born on dad's's birthday. i dreamed of all of the great things that fathers and sons do and from that point on, after we had difficulties, he was diagnosed and we pretty much after that point almost went in separate directions.
5:48 pm
i retired and went to work with numbers and espn and on the road a lot and jill was at home not only with our oldest daughter, but also our son hunter who was suffering from a disease . throughout the whole process of his eight and half years of life, not only did jill keep a journal, but we handled it totally different as men and women do. i was on the road . things were not the way i thought they would be. i thought i would come home and everything would be fine and coming home to a house full of people wore on me and our relationship start to dwindle . with our son and awful his struggle that is he had made it not only hard at home, but made it hard on yil and i as far as our marriage . we hung in there and i always been there to never give up on manage and jill is the same way and she was determined.
5:49 pm
but in the end of it all. our faith kept us together and got us through it. >> and too. >> jill what was the key for you? >> first and foremost our faith. we didn't have a faith to stand on until hunter was diagnosed until we were faced with death of our son, we didn't have any reason to turn to god and thank god that god allowed hunter to suffer so we would turn to god for help and life. but as far as forgiveness and you know, the struggle that is our marriage went through. neither of us understood what forgiveness was until we understood god's forgiveness . in understanding god's forgiveness, i was able to forgive, jim. to be honest with you, governor, i carried arct round unforgive hatred and despair and i carried them around so longg, i was flat out on my

face before god and i think a lot of us carry unforgiveness and until we recognize our own need of forgiveness, we can't truly forgive. >> there is so much pressure on lite lites jim, it is fair to say when you are traveling out there on the road and your wife is not with you. women throw themselves at the athletes, because they see you as megastars and superstars and the ego of saying, i was able to seduce an nfl or nba player, and talk about that pressure and how that weighs on you as an athlete? >> it is not only inal sports but business, too. business men are on the road all of the time and you have to circle back and understand what your faith is and believe in. for me it was going out and having fun. after while you have to think about the ultimate and that is your family. for me it came all the way to

being confronted and saying you need to change your life. i personally looked at that and understood i needed to. i needed to start loving the wife i had at home . the mother who took care of our hunter and the two daughters we have now . also for me with faith, i would never have a chance to see hunter again if i continued to live the lifestyle i led . being able to walk through my front door and to see my two daughters erin and cameron and have them look at their daddy with respect. that to me was right up there at the top and knowing that my wife deserved more than that and i wanted to live a life that i am happy, i want to live a life for the lord now . i tell you what, i wish i would have done it a long time ago. you can see the smile on my face we could not be happier.

>> we are back with jim and jill kelley. jim, it's very apparent in talking to both of you that if it were not for your faith, the fact that you had really come to this end of yourself in the beginning of sayingly, hey, god still likes me, even though jill's mad at me. it's the faith that has given you guys the platform that otherwise, you never would have made this, right? >> well, i totally agree with you. you know, it's interesting because, like jill said earlier
5:56 pm
on, neither one of us had faith. we really didn't know which way to turn. when jill came to faith, after our son was diagnosed and we started having our struggles, i saw what was in jill and early on, it was pretty much tearing us apart, the closer jill got to her faith, the farther i got away with it. but i realized i was losing everything i loved, everything i was working for. if i didn't humble myself to admit my faults. here's a guy that everybody looks up to, as far as playing football, i had to realize in my own mind that i had to get on my knees and understand that i was making mistakes. thank god that i was able to admit them. there are a lot of men out there, men, humble yourself enough. whether it's your marriage, your family, whatever the case may be, you have to be able to step up and man up and understand that -- that there is better things ahead.

you can definitely make them better, but never, ever give up. >> jill, the key to hanging in there and not giving up for you. what was it? >> well, for me... i am going to put it bluntly. it was christ alone. what he has promised. he is not a feel-good tool for me. he's the reality. everything that he has said he would do, through god's word, he has done -- for us. and it's real! i mean, we have experienced it. woe have walked it out. we live it. we have breathed it. and to have joy and to know that, you know, because by faith, we will see hunter again, i mean, that's why we share our story. >> it's a great story. your book is just magnificent. i hope people will read it for the encouragement, as well as for the practical insight of dealing with tragedy and as well as with forgiveness. jim and jill, thank you so much. you have been so candid. it has been a blessing to talk to you. >> thank you. >> we miss nupolitics. >> well, thank you. >> we do!
